Culinary E-Biking in Zillertal
This summer Zillertal is offering a new highlight for all leisure cyclists, nature lovers and connoisseurs: a culinary e-mountain bike tour. E-mountain bikes provide an alternative and sustainable way of reaching the mountain summit. Even non-experienced bikers can now enjoy the biking paradise of the Zillertaler Alps including a climb up to the Hintertux Glacier?s permanent ice.
Your tour begins on the Platzlalm at 1.790 m above sea level where you are kitted out with a Centurion e-mountain bike. After a short introduction and a hearty power breakfast it is time to get on your bike. The tour leads you up to the Kristallh?tte or the Wedelh?tte, where lunch is already waiting for you. Both huts do not just fantastic views of the Zillertaler Alps, but are also well known for their ?high? cuisine. Too soon it is time to get back on the bike, but the next stop is not far away. What better way to end this biking experience than with a gourmet dinner under the stars and a night in one of the suites at a mountain hut.
Over 150 huts can be found along 800 km of bike routes. Each of them worth a stop, whether to sample the local beer or one of the region?s famous organic dishes. Definitely worth trying is the Zillertal Haymilk produce. Haymilk sounds new and innovative, but years ago it was standard practice that farmers fed their cattle with grass and hay from the meadows and produced cheese and yoghurt from the milk. The products made from haymilk are of the highest quality, are extremely healthy and, above all, taste delicious. What?s more, the milk contains 20 % more vitamins and 3 times more Omega-3-fatty acids than normal milk, which has a positive effect on the cardiovascular system.
